A real manga artist is someone who learned everything in life — the essentials as well as the non-essentials — from manga. This seriesof stand-alone gag manga portrays the tragedy, comedy, and everything in between of manga ar tists — from novices to amateurs to hoary veterans — and the editors, readers, and family members whose lives they inevitably disrupt.
